4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Found this on tap at the Yard House in Chino Hills. Barney Flats aged in a bourbon barrel! I’ve tried many stouts that have been aged in bourbon barrels some are good and some are so over powered by bourbon and oak that they taste like soy sauce. The good news is Anderson Valley nailed this one. If you Enjoyed the Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout like I did this is gonna rock your world. The Appearance is Black l and it had a 1" head that stuck around for little while leaving a nice little lacing on the glass. The aroma is intoxicating in itself, bourbon ,oak, cocoa, and coffee up front and sharing the stage nothing really overpowering the other. The mouth feel is smooth and creamy as expected from an oatmeal stout. It taste like it smells except the malts and hops come forward and add tho the blend. The mild after taste is just like it smells mild bourbon and oak burn with chocolate. My new Favorite. Now if I can just find it in Bottles around here.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours black with a warm, reddish hue and a small light brown head. Very sweet and intense Bourbon aroma. Medium body, sweet roast, swet licorice, tons of vanilla from the Bourbon. And because of the strength no real alcohol burn. Extremely easygoing and drinkable. 201115

Tap at Culmination. Super dark pour. Soft - mild bourbon. Too mild for the style. Good but not great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber. Looks very stouty in my glass. Roast and all the usual suspects in the nose (except I’m not getting almost any whiskey). Mouth is medium sweet, thin for the style, dried fruit, cocoa, hints of vanilla and while I guess I can taste the whiskey, it’s super subtle. I prefer my BA stouts to be a 40lb sledgehammer in the bourbon department. Just being honest.
